What is an Occupational Therapist?
Occupational therapists assess and treat patients with physical or psychiatric ailments, to reduce the risk of disability and to help them live their lives as normally as possible. Working with clients of all ages and backgrounds, occupational therapy jobs are some of the most rewarding within the health sector, as you work closely with patients to return them to an independent lifestyle.
Whether the disability stems from a recent accident, a psychological or physical illness or is due to ageing, occupational therapists can help clients overcome the effects using a variety of techniques, exercises and equipment. The role requires the healthcare professional to work with their clients to ensure their end goal is achieved, and there is scope to develop your skillset and move into different specialised positions.
As well as working within the hospital, the role can extend to the wider community – including patients’ homes and local GP surgeries, prisons, schools and nursing homes – wherever therapy is required. The treatment for each client will differ, and may involve:
- Mental health services
- Learning and disability
Responsibilities can also include:
- Research papers
- Care management
- Organising equipment for patients’ homes
To qualify for occupational therapy jobs, you must pass an accredited degree at university. Here, you will learn both the theoretical aspect of the profession and gain first-hand experience through placements. Completing the degree will also give you registration to the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) – a must for any occupational therapist.
What Does an Occupational Therapist Earn?
The salary for a prospective occupational therapist starts at £21,692, rising up to £34,876 depending on experience and specialisation. A senior therapist can earn in the region of £41,000 per annum.
With demand for occupational therapists greater than ever, choosing a locum role may be a useful way to gain experience in a wider range of conditions, environments and patients.
Locum Occupational Therapy jobs
For those looking for greater flexibility, the ability to be your own boss and the prospect of increasing your income, locum occupational therapy jobs may be a valid option. Taking a role on a locum basis allows you to build up experience in a variety of occupational therapy jobs, as well as learn more about the varying hospital or working environments you may come across in full-time employment.
Although you would not be able claim for the additional benefits associated with a fixed role (such as pension, sick pay and holiday pay), there is a huge demand for locum employees within both the NHS and private sector to help fill any potential shortages. With LATs (Locum Appointments for Training) also counting towards your qualifications, there has never been a better time to consider taking an occupational therapy role on a locum basis.
